:bashhead:  Darn. You are my priority now and again I apologize.

 

Do you have another Windows 7 machine that you can use to follow some steps?

Do you have a Windows 7 CD?

Do you have a CD Burner on the netbook of the other computer?

Do you have a blank CD?

Do you have a USB Stick that we can overwrite?

Step#1 - Create a Bootable USB Drive
 
1. Please download the following two things to the Desktop of your Working computer.
    a) Rufus
    b) WinPE 
 
2. Insert your USB drive into your working computer. Note: Please ensure that there isn't anything on the USB drive that you need as we will be formatting it.
3. Right-click on rufus-2.2p.exe and select Run as administrator. Answer Yes to Allow if prompted.
4. If you are asked to check for application updates. Just answer No.
5. Please click on the icon as shown below and select the ISO file that you downloaded to your desktop in step#1b.
    Capture2.JPG
6. Click the Start button.
7. When it's Done click the Close button.
 
 
Step#2 - Boot Your Failed Machine with USB Drive
1. Insert the USB Drive into your Failed computer.
2. Ensure the power is off on this computer.
3. Ensure that your system is configured to boot 1st from the USB Drive before your main hard drive. There are variations on how to do this depending on what machine you have
    however a couple links that show the general steps can be found here and here.
4. Once the BIOS is set to boot from the USB Drive, when you boot your machine with the USB Drive plugged in you should get a message asking you to hit any key to boot from the USB.
    Go ahead and do this.
5. When it's fully loaded you will be at a prompt as follows: x:\windows\system32
6. Type notepad in the command prompt window and hit enter.
7. Select the File menu and choose Open. Double click on Computer so you see all of your drive letters. You will see drive letter X: as well as others. Identify which one is your Local Disk. It won't be X.
8. Now you can cancel out of this window. You can also close notepad.
9. Now type the following into the command prompt window exactly as shown and hit enter.

copy D:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-com-base-qfe-rpcss_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_6bd245e79c221747\rpcss.dll D:\Windows\System32\rpcss.dll     <------please ensure you change the letter d to the drive letter you identified previously. There is a space before the letter D in both instances above.

10. If done correctly it should say 1 file(s) copied within the command prompt window.
11. Type exit in the command-prompt window and hit enter. In a few moments your computer will reboot.

 

Let me know how it goes or if you get stuck at any steps.

Got to main screen with everything seemingly restored but then crashed saying BAD_POOL_HEADING.

 

Won't restart. 

 

There is an option for a Complete Restore.  

Don't really want to do this yet as there is some data on there and it's a relative's PC

Actually I realise I can backup all the data on to an external hard disk which I am doing.

 

Complete Restore may be simplest option now.

 

Will wait till I hear from you before doing this.

You should have waited for a response from me. We could have easily resolved the boot issue. For future reference, in your first screen shot you would just have to hit enter on the Boot Device Priority to adjust.

 

I'm not exactly sure what the basic restore did but you may want to try replacing the file still using the instructions provided. If that doesn't work then we can go the full restore route.

Sorry about that. 

 

I've tried rebooting from the USB drive as described.

 

It goes into a loop trying to launch repair

So you have adjusted the BIOS to boot from USB first?

 

When the machine starts do you see any message on the screen that says press any key to boot from USB?
